Best Of The Watchword: Red's Picks

This Friday marks the one year anniversary of Gingers is the Watchword (I know. I can't believe we made it either). To celebrate, all four of our lovely contributors (yes, even Dave) will grace you with a list of their top 5 favorite GitW posts from the past year. I get to go first because I am the most bossy. Enjoy:

Things I Learned at Comic Con by Liz - One of my all time favorite posts because it was the first time we had, like, insider information. I love insider information! Makes me feel like such an insider. Also, Liz is a hugely talented writer and every time she posts it's sure to be hilarious.

The Radiohead Covers by Garney - I had a hard time choosing my favorite Radiohead cover, so I've linked you to all of them. Garney calling me to sing as other people is one of the highlights of my life.

Happy Singles Awareness Day by Red - Sadly, this collection of 100 or so words is, in my opinion, the funniest thing I've ever written.

Forgotten Classics by Garney - Garney knows more about movies than anyone ever (take that Scorsese). This post is an excellent example of an email conversation between Garney and myself turning into a great blog post, rife with discussion possibilities. EW needs to hire us both. Bring some credibility to that rag.

Who is Your Blogger Crush? by Red - Crushes are a hot topic for me, as I'm sure you've noticed. This post in particular is near and dear to my heart because it got me free drinks one very fun night this summer and really, isn't that the reason we all started blogging in the first place? For free drinks?

Honorable Mentions (aka cheating): Last Walk in the Garden by Liz and Red (because it was a great good-bye to The Wire), Leprechaun? In a Tree? by Dave (because Dave is the YouTube king!) and Sweet Persephone's Pomegranate Seeds by Liz (because nothing has ever made me laugh harder).

Congrats on one year of only semi-Communist red leanings, all.

(I can't ever bring myself to tell a woman "happy anniversary," as I try to define my love life by Magnetic Fields songs: "But the words you want to hear you will never hear from me/I'll never stay to say 'happy anniversary.'")

Are you celebrating your one-year anniversary by putting a typo in your first sentence?

Uh, I mean, congratulations!

As I didn't know you in February, I'm looking forward to your Singles Awareness Day post of '09. Maybe we should have a SAD Summit of some sort. (Oooh, how alliterative of me.)

Garney said...

Me calling you to sing as other people is a highlight of my life too.

Baby it's been a long time. We've had our share of ups and downs. But we've made it through, you and I. We've made it through.

I love you, GITW, and I don't care who knows it.

Red said...

Pistols: You haven't been reading very closely if you think they are semi-communist leanings. And you can define our love life with any lyrics you like, sir.

Becks: What typo? I have no idea what you are talking about.

Maybe we can have a SAD day retreat to, like, Chicago or something. Single fellas, look out!

G: This love fest is making everyone sick. I love it.

Fal: We love you, too, doll. You were our first and we'll never forget our first.

BeckEye said...

I must be smoking dope again. I learned it from you, Red. I learned it from YOU!

Falwless said...

I liked your Blogger Crush posting. None of those things you mentioned about your blogger crush applies to me. And yet you seek out my put-downs. Very interesting.

Oh, yeah, you still need to improve that avatar of yours.

Red said...

Was that you, Mathdude?

words words words said...

A whole year! Congratulations. I'm not even up to a month yet and I'm already ready to do a clip show.

May the only blog named after hot red hair live on another year!

Falwless said...

Duuuude. For a second I was like, "Wow, did I get drunk today and leave a comment I forgot leaving?"

Yes it was 'rithmetic nerdboy. GAH!

Jon said...

Hey, congrats on the year! My favorite post was the one when you had that video of you and Liz jello wrestling topless. Or was that just my imagination? I don't know. Congrats either way.
